Case presentation

A 55-year-old man presents with multiple smooth red-pink papules on his left eyebrow (Figure 1). The lesions started to appear four weeks after excision of a pyogenic granuloma, and within 12 weeks there were 11 papules scattered around the excision site. Associated mild lichenification of the upper and lower eyelids is noted, consistent with dermatitis. There is also evidence of dermatitis on the patient’s forearms and hands.
